PROMM with Janeal Jaroh

A series of graves in Silver Spring Township testify that the dark side of human nature lurks everywhere, and is timeless.  Calculated murder, multiple victims, an unknowing love triangle, money, power, position, it’s all there. Will they get away with the killings or will there be an execution in public square of Carlisle?
